The Avengers Movie Review
I’ve been a “superhero” fanatic ever since I was a child! I remember I used to collect comics like RoboCop, Star Trek, Star Wars, iron fist and more.
So when ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ movie opens here in the Philippines, my husband and I were one of the first in line!
Marvel’s The Avengers is a 2012 American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is the sixth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson. In The Avengers, Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., recruits Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk and Thor to form a team that must stop Thor’s brother Loki from enslaving the human race.
“The Avengers” is now on track to take in over $1 billion at the global box office, analysts estimate. This 3-D picture, directed by Joss Whedon (until now best known for creating “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), has already sold about $441.5 million in tickets overseas and has yet to open in important markets like Japan.
But I’m sorry to say The Avengers isn’t a good movie; it’s a GREAT MOVIE!!!! It’s not only the best team superhero movie ever made, but it may just be the best comic book adaption made period!
All in all, Marvel’s The Avengers is a visual delight and I cannot wait to see it again, and again, and again. Marvel fans will not be disappointed, and something tells me that most of you will agree with me wholeheartedly.
The Avengers, assembled and awe-inspiring. Ten out of ten.
